Paper-mache is a blended material consisting of paper pulp, bound with an adhesive used to make utility or decorative items. Mrs. Ramani Rao from Nagpur is an artist based in Nagpur, famous for creating Paper Mache dolls for three decades. Inspired by her mother, she started this as a hobby but now employs 16 handicapped women from the locality, providing them a means for living through this doll-making activity. She is an active participant in prominent exhibitions across the country as well as foreign lands like Norway, the US, Denmark, etc. The art center tries to give a glimpse of our Indian Classical dance forms, Folk dances, Tribes of India, Brides and grooms of India, etc., through their work.
